Olympics seek ‘God’s intervention’ to halt poor run in Ghana PL

Skipper of the side Dan Quaye says they have done all they could to win matches but to no avail

Great Olympics captain Dan Quaye is obviously at his wits’ end, calling on God to lend a hand in the fight to revive their fortunes in the Ghana Premier League.

Of 12 games played thus far, the Accra-based side have won only one on the pitch, but have additionally benefitted from three points gained in a successful protest over newly-promoted Bolga All Stars.

The side sit third from bottom on the table, and even a change in technical leadership has not improved their status.

“We are very disappointed because in our last four games, it’s clear that we dominated possession but how to convert our chances has been our bane,” Quaye told Happy FM.

“We are in dire need of luck.

“Also, we’re praying that God intervenes because we have always taken charge of games since the start of the season but we’re not winning games as we would like.”

Olympics’ problems transcended the pitch by the messy managerial crisis following the appointment of Swede Tom Strand as head coach ahead of the scoreless draw with Liberty Professionals earlier this month.

It was indeed an unfortunate episode as the playing body was divided into two.

While one set trained with Strand, the other practiced under hitherto head coach Godwin Attram, who was demoted to the deputy coach upon the Swede’s arrival.

Attram maintained he could not work with the former Medeama trainer, but the issue has since been resolved, with both men present on same bench for the first time in the 2-1 defeat to Tema Youth on Wednesday.
